A Mars-Jupiter conjunction can amp up your good fortune. Are you ready to take advantage?
Mars is the firebrand, high-energy planet and Jupiter is generous, lucky, and wildly abundant. What do you get when they come together? The heart and soul of joie de vivre, the essence of the joy of life lived on the big stage! This sounds absolutely wonderful, but too much of a good thing is still too much. In fact, it can be disastrous. With a little preparation, though, we can enjoy this great blessing without getting scorched by the excess and exuberance.
Mars and Jupiter join forces in the sky like this only once every two years or so. It happens on April 30, 2011, and persists for about a week. The planets will be in Aries, ruled by Mars, so Mars will influence Jupiter. If 22 Aries is a powerful degree in your birth chart, you may be especially affected. No matter, though. Your Sun Sign is enough for a good luck heads-up and help in sidestepping any troubles.
: Everyone secretly wants to be you, dress like you, and have your glowing personality. Enjoy, and know that the charm isn't permanent. Sincere modesty and a sense of humor will help make it last.
: You want your world to be luxurious and drop-dead beautiful. Entertain and share, but stay within your means. Your flawless taste in all good things will be enough to dazzle.
: Your words are golden and conversations sterling. Be honest and keep flattery to a minimum for the best long-term results. People will remember that you said it.
: Short trips and favors for friends and family can pay off later. People are impressed by your energy and they'll work hard to reciprocate. You know how they feel, and they appreciate it, but don't burn out and neglect yourself.
: Complete some long-loved project in grand style and there will be no end to the rewards and admiration. Don't bother flaunting your brilliance, though. It will only inspire jealousy.
: Others are drowning in details, but you instantly see the pattern and the heart of the matter. This can really impress employers and superiors if you aren't overzealously explaining the universe to everyone.
: You can literally be a lifesaver of a relative, stranger, or stray animal. Be sure to take care of yourself first, and watch how sensitive and sensible you appear to the outside world. Good people will want you on their side.
: A new romantic or business partner might beg to walk over hot coals to win your affection and loyalty. It will all be out in the open, though, so don't expect any privacy in the affair.
: Be generous with time and someone else might be generous with money. Or you might inherit something big time. The less you expect, the more you stand to gain.
: Embrace your work (or studies) as a meditation. The results can be colossal. Now is the time to win big points with an employer or academic adviser. Even if material gain comes slowly, you win big in knowledge and experience.
: People are work, especially groups of them. There may be a certain group, though, calling your name and giving you a chance to absolutely shine. If it touches your heart, go for it, but don't let it eat up your life.
: You know exactly what's popular, so if you have some creative idea or a project, it could go viral and make a ton of money. Or it could make a ton of publicity now and money later, but only if you're smart about it.
Mars conjunct Jupiter can be a roller-coaster ride, but that can be fun! Stay practical and enjoy the thrills.
